Light Hydrocarbons/Fixed Gas Analyzers by TCD - Model 4017

Our solutions are designed specifically to ensure your compliance with regulatory methods ASTM D1946 and E1746 for chlorine impurities analysis, while also optimizing productivity and ROI. Our series of analyzers utilize a combination of gas chromatography (GC) and a thermal conductivity detector (TCD), providing an efficient and robust solution for the analysis of gaseous samples. Alert - ASTM E1746, Model 4020: In response to the COVID-19 crisis, PerkinElmer addresses ASTM E1746 “Standard Test Method for Sampling and Analysis of Liquid Chlorine for Gaseous Impurities” in order to serve the needs of chemicals producers aiding in the current bleach and bleach-based wipe disinfectants shortage.

Utilizing a dual thermal TCD and packed columns, Model 4017 can be paired with a number of optional channels including an FID (flame ionization detector) for better hydrocarbon detection, a methanizer/FID and purged-valve housings for trace CO and CO2 analysis, an FPD (Flame Photometric detector) or a sulfur chemiluminescence detector for sub-ppm levels of hydrogen sulfide and other light sulfur compounds. Building on the features of Model 4016, this analyzer offers full-range hydrogen detection using a separate channel with nitrogen carrier gas. Meeting the needs of operations required to analyze samples for ASTM D1946, PerkinElmer’s Model 4017 guarantees detection limits of 0.02% for H2S, and 0.01% for Ar-O2 composite, N2, CH4, CO, CO2, ethylene, ethane and acetylene.

Application Brief

Quantification of Light Gases Contaminants in Chlorine by Chlorine Analyzer Application Brief

From keeping our drinking water safe to disinfecting our public transportation systems and hospitals, chlorine chemistry plays a critical role in the manufacturing of thousands of products we depend upon to remain healthy. Whether it’s used in the manufacturing processes or in a final product, chlorine (Cl2) makes our world a safer place.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, hygiene essentials are in such high demand, that there are now critical supply shortfalls for bleach and bleach-based wipe disinfectants. Underscoring the importance of disinfectants and sanitizer production, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released guidance for retail stores, restaurants, and food services during the pandemic to safeguard workers and consumers. Furthermore, the EPA's Emerging Pathogen Policy states that bleach products can combat COVID-19 when used as directed on hard, nonporous surfaces. Chlorine is the most important ingredient to produce bleach and bleach related products, however, due to chlorine’s corrosive nature, manufacturers need analysis systems that are resistant to metal corrosion, while providing sensitivity and speed.
